George is truly amazing! Like so many others, I have been suffering with chronic back, neck and leg pain, and I have tried various massage therapists and chiropractors. They provided some relief, but George is the one who provided significant relief! After only one session with him I woke up the next morning without back or leg pain, and with renewed vitality! He found tightness in places I didn't even know existed. And I appreciated how he educated me about his technique. I am so happy I found George, and I will go back for treatments as much as possible!
George has been helping me work through some shoulder pain. I walk out of there each week able to turn my neck completely to both sides again. We're making progress!
George is a rare find. He puts so much of himself into the work he does. You can feel the difference. His technique is special and very healing. He does an amazing job of gradually working into the muscle. Therefore, unlike so many other massages it is painless and comfortable. I felt so revitalized after his therapy. I cannot wait for my next appointment.
This is *not* just a massage for the physical body.. It's a massage for the mind, body, emotions & spirit. My affect went from weepy to joyful within an hour of George's technique, which involves deeply intelligent physical manipulation as well client education, emotional expression, and therapeutic breathing. I had been having periodic difficulty breathing and wasn't sure if it was primarily due to allergies, chronic muscle contraction, or anxiety. The massage really freed my upper body and breath, and the physical effects of the first session were lasting. I experienced deeper breathing after only one session and didn't see breathing issues again for several days. The conversation part of the technique helps to free stagnant trauma & emotions. As a yoga practitioner, I felt clearing in my fifth chakra and an increased awareness & ability to speak my authentic truth over the next few days. George has an impeccable sensitivity to receive the messages of the body he is working with. He creates a very loving and safe space. I never once had to tell him to pull back or do anything differently; he was deeply listening to what my body was telling him, going deep but not too deep so as to cause damage. He has a good sense of how to meet the client where he/ she is at. Completely brilliant, I wouldn't go to anyone else in Minneapolis!
I originally found George randomly through a Groupon. After my first session I was beginning to wonder if our crossing paths wasn't so random. I have been dealing with some heavy emotions lately. George's calm and gentle demeanor was exactly what I needed. It was as if he could see through me and knew exactly what to say to make me feel better. Also, his use of Functional Muscle Manipulation and deep breathing techniques were successful in helping me let go of stress and pain. I highly recommend paying George a visit!
Back in 2008 Ι read one of George Rodafinos’ articles about the Functional Muscle Manipulation. He was discussing how physical traumas from an accident but also emotional tensions since childhood would be stored as memory in the muscles creating chronic contractions, acute pain and restricted mobility. The FMM with it’s deep, precise pressure and friction and with the deep, relieving breathing, helps in liberating this chronic muscle tension. All I read resonated with me. So I decided to study this technique. During the lessons I was receiving therapy and I was giving to others. I very well remember how ‘light’ my upper back felt after the first lesson. For 2-3 days after I kept feeling 'something happening’ in the whole length of my back, like it was ‘working’. After each lesson I felt the need to stretch and my whole back would ‘pop', especially the upper part, where I had my postural problem. My whole body gradually started feeling lighter, free and flexible. Others were noticing that my body was not ‘bent forward' anymore. A unique thing that happened to me after a lesson: While on the bus returning home, Ι found myself sobbing, but without crying, while at the same time I felt great emotionally. The FMM opened up my breathing, made it deeper and wider in my every day life. 'A straightening of the back may bring many changes in our being’. From the book 'The school for Gods' by Stefano Elio D' Anna
I have been receiving therapeutic massages from George for a few months. He is skillful at "getting to the root of the problem" and has developed an effective method of having you engage by using a simple breathing technique which he will teach you (basically just taking a deep inhale and exhaling while he works out tight or tender spots.) You end up feeling relaxed AND get lasting results. I walked in to one session with a very sore shoulder and walked out nearly pain-free and movement has been improved ever since. He is a good and thoughtful listener too . Highly recommend!
Deep and relaxing
I found George through Groupon originally. I was pleasantly surprised by his efforts to actually fix the problems with by achey back, not just give a relaxing massage where the effects wear off as soon as I walked out the door. His use of pressure was perfect and I felt the results for days. He was able to really focus in on my problem areas and work them out better than I've ever before experienced. His unique technique is amazing!
George does an excellent job of correcting muscle issues that have been place for years. Many of the aches and pains that he has resolved for me were ones that I thought I was going to have to live with for the rest of my life.
